The most basic (and yet heart-wrenching) Truth of Life is loss. The endings. They are brutal.
Of course they all lead us into new chapters and hopeful beginnings. But, the fact is, GOING completes the cycle. Saying goodbye can be painful, on many levels. It can also, if we focus our perspective, be enriching.
Here is what the Universe would like us to remember about living and leaving right now:
Before All Else
What this DOESN’T mean is to put anyone or anything before our own health and well-being. What it DOES mean is, let’s make sure that we bring lovingkindness to the forefront, always.
Let’s not forget to replace fear with faith. Let’s have Self-Care at the top of our daily To Do lists. What it also means is to Choose Joy, practice gratitude, and generally wear that power of positivity into as many situations as we possibly can.
I can link to several songs right now, all of which have LOVE as the theme, but I’m fairly certain you have some personal favorites and can locate them quite easily. Play them now, sing along, feel the strength in that energy.
On our card altar, this validation appears, as reinforcement. (Please be extra aware of the last three words. Repeat it as a mantra this week and you won’t go wrong.)
moderation, energy, tolerance, gentleness, compassion, feminine, goddess
Whether male or female, you can overcome a current conflict by reflecting upon and applying moderation, tolerance, gentleness, and compassion.
These qualities are not a weakness, rather, they are strengths. What is called for at present is greater compassion and tolerance coupled with a little patience and gentleness.
It is possible to resolve things in an amicable way to create a positive outcome for all concerned.
As you look back on this current episode, you will realise a valuable lesson. Compassion and tolerance are a sign of maturity and strength of character.
They are qualities which infuse all with love and light.”

is this view, and recommendation, for August.
If we stop only once a day and bring this image to mind, say the words and feel the power, we have given ourselves and our loved ones a gift in that moment; appreciate it, sit with it, honour it. We’re worth that piece of time, we’re worth that space and that blessing.
